So I went to put in a brand new fuel tank sender. When I went to pull the old one out the fuel strainer fell off in the tank. I just went ahead and put the new sender. Now what should I do?Just leave it in there? Am I going to have problems later?

You'll be just fine. I opened a tank up once on a Typhoon and found 3. I was in the tank to install duel in-tank fuel pump set up, truck was running great. The customer said they owned the truck 5 years and they didn't replace the pump.
